On March 19, 2021, CBI hosted a virtual engagement for Switzer Network Fellows to share best practices and lessons learned about breakthrough collaboration for environmental problem solving.

CBI pracitioners - Gina Bartlett, Bennett Brooks, Ekow Edzie, Stephanie Horii, and Kristin Marcell - discussed the key components of effective stakeholder engagement and conflict resolution, drawing on examples from CBI’s work on sustainable groundwater management, forestry collaboratives, marine resources management, renewable energy development and “climigration” (climate-related migration). Fellows then brought forth their own challenges around environmental collaboration to hear how the expert practitioners would approach the dilemma.
